Poll Finds Less Than 6% of Parents Think Michelle Obama’s School Lunches are Healthy


It’s no surprise that kids hate Michelle Obama’s so-called “healthy” school lunches. But evidently, it isn’t just students — their parents don’t like Queen Michelle’s lunch mandate, either.

As the debate on school lunch reform continues to rage on at the national and state government level, a new survey found that less than six percent of parents feel the recent reforms have resulted in any meaningful healthy changes in the foods served to their children. Conducted by the Life Time Foundation, a private operating foundation created by Life Time — The Healthy Way of Life CompanySM, the survey tallied 1,079 parents’ thoughts regarding school meals.

Survey participants suggested that government guidelines and implemented changes nationwide aren’t resonating with parents. Most notably, 29 percent said they weren’t sure what the new guidelines are and 22 percent said that the guidelines didn’t seem to improve the lunches at all. Moreover, 43.8 percent said that more change needs to be implemented.

When deciding to purchase school lunches, survey respondents said price and convenience weren’t as important as quality of ingredients. More than 72 percent are willing to pay up to $2.00 more per meal for healthier meals for their children, and 83 percent said they would have their child purchase school meals more often if the offerings were all natural. Notably, 72 percent of parents also said they regularly review the nutrition content of the food they serve their kids at home, while 60 percent of parents have never looked at the nutritional information of foods supplied at school.

Gosh, it’s almost as if our unelected First Lady with absolutely no knowledge, education, or training in nutrition doesn’t know how to come up with a healthy school lunch program! It’s enough to make one wonder if it’s possibly just another way for her to get her greedy little claws into as many facets of American life as possible before leaving the White House, and has nothing at all to do with improving the health of American children.
